THE PUMPKIN EXPERIENCE
Secretts has a farm shop & a massive ‘pick your own’. Each year they grow & sell their harvest of pumpkins – The field always looks incredible and such a fun experience to share with your kids in half term. You can find more info about Secretts Pumpkin week on their facebook page.
LAST YEARS MINI SHOOTS!
It is super special to be able to experience the pumpkin field before all the crowds of people arrive and it makes such a pretty backdrop for pictures. This is a mini shoot and so time will go super quick! We will try and get some photos of each of your children individually, siblings together and you all as a family. After we have got some shots at the pumpkin field we are able to use the lovely grounds at Secretts so can get a mix of shots using the gorgeous autumnal colours at this time of year! Here are some of the shots I took last year.
MY TOP TIPS FOR THE SHOOT
- MAKE SURE YOU GET TO THE PYO CAR PARK FOR 7.50AM!
Pumpkin week is super popular and I will start each shoot at 8am – So the quicker we can meet up & get to the field the better! Crowds will be arriving and queuing for 9am entry slot, so we want to make sure we are done with pumpkins by then! You don’t have to pay to get in if you meeting me at 8am.
- WEAR APPROPRIATE FOOTWEAR & THINK ABOUT YOUR OUTFITS
If half term is super wet then the field will get very muddy! Do not wear your best shoes! Wellies, boots or old trainers are fine. If you are having photographs as a family it is well worth thinking about what you are going to wear. Autumnal colours work well with khaki greens, creams, mustard yellows, burnt orange & light blues. I would avoid wearing anything white, black or with lots of patterns. And of course make sure you are feeling cosy & warm! It can be pretty chilly so think wooly jumpers, hats & scarfs too!
- BRING A LARGE HEAVY DUTY BAG AND AN OLD TEA TOWEL!
If you would like to purchase some pumpkins after our shoot it’s best to have a heavy duty shopping bag to carry it in – They are heavy! The old tea towel is to wipe off the mud! Saves getting mud all over your hands or in your car!
- WHO ARE MINI SHOOTS AT PUMPKIN WEEK BEST FOR?
The nature of a mini shoot is that we don’t have as much time as a big family shoot. If your little one is under 2 the mud might be a bit much, I would not recommend these shoots for those with babies. These shoots are for families of 5 maximum and are great for toddler age & above. If you think your little ones are a little shy and a full family shoot, where we have more time and I can take pictures at your home would be better, you can check out my website for family shoot.
- ANY RULES FOR COVID-19?
I will of course make sure I tell you if I, or anyone in my household developed symptoms in the run up to the shoot – And you should do the same, better to be cautious at the moment. (If you needed to cancel for this reason I will hold a mini shoot in a local woodlands at another point). I will make sure all my kit is cleaned and will anti-bac my hands regularly throughout the shoot. If you would like me to wear a mask whilst shooting I am more than happy to – I will aim to keep 1m+ outdoors at all times and all images will taken outdoors.
- WHAT DO WE DO IF SIDEWAYS RAIN AT 8AM!?
Now I will do my best sun dance on the run up to half term but I can’t promise the weather will behave! I had a couple days of lovely sunshine last year and one morning that was super foggy! We still got some cracking shots! If the weather is too rainy at 8am on your shoot day we have a couple of choices. We can leave it till later in the day/ the week and make sure we pick a corner of the field with less people. I will also be keeping Saturday 31st October with no shoots as a back up day for any shoots that need to be moved due to the weather.
